I can tell you that Rey is an incredibly brave young woman who starts off alone and encounters Finn, and they go on an amazing adventure, and she makes relationships she never could have imagined, and she sees things she never could have imagined.
Daisy Ridley
I was actually sacked from my first job. It was at a workshop for a short film this poet had written, about when she used to work in a strip club. After the first week, I was told not to come back.
Daisy Ridley
I can knit quite well. I make really long scarves.
What we've seen of Rey, she looks like she can handle her stuff. So most of the comments I get are from parents who say how wonderful it is that their little girls can see this character.

Daisy Ridley
I went to a school called Tring Park School for the Performing Arts. I went because initially I was very naughty, and my mom thought if I was busy, I'd be better. And I didn't really do acting until later on in the school, with an amazing teacher. I left, went traveling, came back.

My great uncle was in 'Dad's Army.' And I don't know if Americans will know that. It was a hugely popular show in England.

When I feel comfortable, I just like to sing and hum, and I don't even know I'm doing it. But sometimes someone will come over to me like, 'I love that song you were singing, but it's distracting.'
Daisy Ridley
I don't know if I can prepare for what's to come because I don't know what will.
Daisy Ridley
Rey's parents left her at 5, and we meet her when she's late teens or early 20s, and for someone to keep hopeful that there's a better life to come, I think, is astounding. Though she starts off alone, she very much finds her place in a group of people, and that's lovely.
Daisy Ridley
My film knowledge is pretty shocking. I'm trying to correct that.
I was kind of loathe to go on social media. I find the trolling unacceptable, and I never wanted to look like I was someone who would accept that.
Daisy Ridley
The thing about 'Star Wars' is that every single person is important. Even though Rey is a big role, everyone influences everyone. If that wasn't so, why would so many people remember Admiral Ackbar?
Daisy Ridley
It's one thing for other people to see potential in you, and it's quite another for you to understand that and see it in yourself.
Daisy Ridley
Both my parents are creative. My dad did act when he was younger, but they're both very creative.
Daisy Ridley
It's funny because the action figures are cool, and then I enjoy the magazines because that's me. Obviously, the fans are wonderful – they're so excited – but I'm not Rey, and people tend to not be able to differentiate the two.
Daisy Ridley
I love to come to L.A. to visit, and then I like to come to rainy old London because it's home.

So many people look up to Jennifer Lawrence playing Katniss in 'The Hunger Games.' For them to look up to Rey and what she represents would be fantastic. She's a wonderful character… The reason I love her so much is she does all the fun stuff. She fights, runs and protects herself and has an incredible emotional story.
Daisy Ridley
Rey is so strong. She's cool and smart and she can look after herself. Young girls can look at her and know that they can wear trousers if they want to. That they don't have to show off their bodies.
Daisy Ridley
I love Felicity Jones. It was funny because I went to go see the 'Rogue One' set, and I was like, 'Oh my God, I love you.' And she's so tiny, and elegant, and she's just so small. Everyone's so much smaller than they seem.
Daisy Ridley
I wasn't trying to fit into a thing… it was not like I was like, 'Right, I'm the Han; I'm the Leia; I'm the Luke.' I was just like, 'Okay, I'm Rey, just trying to do me, just trying to do this scene, trying to do the right thing,' and I think that was a huge advantage because I think if not, it would've been a very different thing.
Daisy Ridley
Hope makes people good, a lot of the time. You hope for a brighter future, and resentment is outweighed.
Daisy Ridley
I liked 'Star Wars,' but I wasn't an uberfan like many people are.

I auditioned for this agency. I got an advertisement first, and then something else, which I got fired from. It was soul-destroying. And then the next thing I got, I thought was going to be my big break, and they cut the role. It was only the year that I started auditioning for 'Star Wars' when I really started getting roles.
Daisy Ridley
I've never been one for crushing on famous people.
